Fall Into Reading
Continuing my reintroduction into society and normal life after that exam, I am going to make a late contribution to the Fall Into Reading challenge set by Katrina of Callapidder Days. She started it to encourage people in their personal and family reading, with the built-in accountability of sharing these goals with others. It's been running since the 23rd September but I've got until the 21st December to read my books. After pottering around my house looking for those half-read or abandoned books, here is what I found!

"Cloud Atlas" by David Mitchell
A friend gave this to me as a birthday present and told me she had loved it. It has been sitting on my book shelf for months however, so hopefully this will be the impetus to read it. I hope it is worth it!

"The Fellowship of the Ring" by J R R Tolkien
Of course I have read this before - it is an absolute classic and if you haven't read it, you should! I just found it while wandering around my house looking at bookshelves and realised that I hadn't read this since I saw the Lord of the Rings films years ago.

"Taken by Communion" by Dan Schmidt
This was in the Bargain Basement of my local Christian bookstore. I haven't read it yet, so I am not sure if that was for good reason or not! The blurb on the back says that Schmidt "offers a refreshing perspective on the Lord's Supper...Discover what happens when you are taken by communions - when the one who longs to love us draws hear." I'll let you know how I get on.

"The Cost of Discipleship" by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Currently this just sits on the bookshelf looking impressive. I really should get round to reading it.

"The Rich Single Life" by Andrew Farmer
This has been sitting in my Favourites column of my web browser (it's an online book) since the beginning of August! Eek!

I'm doing the Fll Reading too. It's been a real incentive to get back to serious reading. Your books look great. Believe it or not I've never read Lord of the Rings. I'll have to do that soon I think.
Thanks so much for your comment and your prayers. Much appreciated.

Hi - just wanted to stop by and thank you for joining in the challenge! It looks like you have some good books on your list. I remember reading The Cost of Discipleship years ago - it gave me so much to think about.

Enjoy your reading!
